Super Amigos

Access no.490

82min.2007

Arturo Perez Torres

Super Amigos follows 5 modern-day super heroes in Mexico City as they fight for social justice and human
rights. These super heroes are a group of Lucha Libre wrestlers who have taken their fight out of the ring and
into the streets of the Mexican Capital. Super Barrio, Super Gay, Ecologista Universal, Super Animal and Fray
Tormenta are real life masked super heroes who fight against evil slumlords, corrupt politicians, homophobia,
pollution, animal abusers, and poverty. Though their true identity remains a mystery, they could easily be
Mexico City’s most popular figures and last salvation. Creativity and social activism combine to become a
powerful force.

Access no.491

85min.2007

Annie Sundberg & Ricki Stern

This hard-hitting film exposes the tragedy taking place in Darfur as seen through the eyes of former Marine
Captain, Brian Steidle. His photographs and testimony take us on an emotionally charged journey into the
heart of Darfur, Sudan where an Arab run government is systematically executing a plan to rid the province of
its black African citizens. As an official military observer, Steidle was unprepared for what he would witness
and experience including being unable to intervene to save lives. Frustrated by the inaction of the international
community, he resigned and returned to the US to expose the images and stories of lives destroyed and to
work to stop the carnage. Disturbing images.

Saving Marriage

Access no.492

90min.2005

Mike Roth & John Hennig

In November 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Court issued a historic decision that made the state the first
in the US to legalize same-sex marriage. Instead of representing a final victory for the movement, it was just
the beginning of the fight that would stretch through two state Constitutional Conventions and an election and
is still in process today. Saving Marriage chronicles the events spawned by the initial court decision.
Interviews with lobbyists, activists, and politicians give an inside look at the strategies and efforts employed to
preserve the right for gays and lesbians to marry. A gripping drama.
